Dr. Grever has over 30 years of experience in experimental chemotherapy and drug development for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and other hematologic malignancies. He performed the initial phase I studies on purine nucleoside analogs in patients with hematologic malignancies and conducted one of the initial phase II studies of fludarabine in patients with CLL. Together with John C. Byrd, MD, Dr. Grever was among the first to investigate the potential of histone deacetylase inhibitors (depsipeptide) and cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors (flavopiridol) in CLL; he oversaw both laboratory and phase I clinical studies of both these agents.
